People Have Strong Opinions On Taylor’s NME Awards Win

Taylor Swift had a pretty interesting reaction to winning an NME Award last night.

The 26-year-old nabbed the gong for Best International Solo Artist, beating off competition from musicians including Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and Lana Del Rey.

She couldn’t make it to the ceremony at London’s O2 Academy Brixton (she’s probably still recovering from Monday’s Grammys), but sent her thanks with a video message.

However, T-Swizzle seemed a tad confused by the trophy. Well, it IS in the shape of a hand sticking up a middle finger. Lolz.

In the clip, Taylor said: ‘I got the award in the mail. I gotta be honest with you, when you first open the box this feels a little aggressive.

‘But then you get used to it, you put it on the shelf. You’re like: “I kinda like it, it’s kinda LOL.”

Taylor Swift’s already got a pretty huge trophy collection


‘But I’m just saying at first impressions, it’s a little weird, but now I understand it. It’s a strange compliment, you’re being cheeky about it.’

Taylor is pretty much clearing up this awards season. At the Grammys, her record 1989 was named the winner of the prestigious Album Of The Year prize.
